Publisher's Summary

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer. The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn-and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin's strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons-and embrace a love that means more than revenge or land.

    Story
    "Tired, derivative story. Dreadful narration."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Original plot and characters. A storyline that is not contrived.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I listened to The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. It had a very good balance of an original story and interesting characters. Howe has a nice writing style and Kellgren did a fine job as the narrator. There was even romance - one I liked.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was not up to the task of keeping in character. One minute she had a faux Scottish accent, the next a bland American one.


    What character would you cut from In Bed with a Highlander?

    The question is which one to keep in? I cannot think of any except for a secondary child character.


    Any additional comments?

    I rarely buy romances. I decided to try this one because it was on sale and had so many 5 star reviews. Why anyone would give this a 5 stars is beyond me.

    Story
    "Young woman finds her place in the world."

    Story starts out fairly violent and cruises for a while working on the relationship of the heroine (and make no mistake, she is a heroine, not a damsel in distress) with her new husband and new clan. The characters in the story were well done. The narration really drew me into the story and made it real. Kristen Potter had great accents for the characters and she did a very good job with male voices. The end of the story ends with some suspense and action that was fine, but sort of gilding the lily on this great listen.

    Story
    "Not bad"

    This was an okay listen. When I was done I didn't have any overwhelming feelings in either direction- love or hate. I think what holds this book above water is the narration. The story line is decent, but predictable. I found myself giving a half hearted cheer in certain parts of the book...

    "not the best...but not the worst..."
    What did you like best about In Bed with a Highlander? What did you like least?

    It took a while for me to even care about the heroine or the hero.... so it dragged until the second half when the story line picked up.. I did enjoy it and the second book is proving to be worth it!


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    It's ok.. she moves pretty fast though... but her accent in genuine and easy to listen to


    Did In Bed with a Highlander inspire you to do anything?

    LOL!

    Story
    "A trilogy I listened to in a weekend."
    Would you consider the audio edition of In Bed with a Highlander to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version..I am now an audible addict with a sackful of books in my closet.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love story, sexy with the usual but good ending.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the narration, her characters were distinct and natural, even the men.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to the entire trilogy in a weekend!


    Any additional comments?

    Listen in order..they are all a bit unique but follow all the characters along.

    "Wonderfully entertaining series!"

    I had gotten the last book of this series a few months ago and liked it but thanks to the Series Sale I was able to get the first 2 as well. When you listen to this one first and the others in order it makes them much more enjoyable. Don't get these if you are squeamish about sex scenes as they are plentiful and graphic. Otherwise enjoy!

    Story
    "Bought this on sale because I love Maya Banks"
    What did you love best about In Bed with a Highlander?

    Much to my surprise, I loved this series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In Bed with a Highlander?

    Maron's wedding night...if you could call it a 'night'. :)


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only in this series but I look forward to anything she performs. She is exceptional.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed Marion and her quest to please her man. This is an excellent start to the series.

    "blah"

    Because I listened to the Outlander series (my first exposure to both historical fiction and romance) I assumed this would somehow equal Outlander in complexity and storytelling. The story was OK but formulaic. It was painful to listen to all the cliches about bodice ripping and sheaths and manhoods. The plot twists seemed thin and implausible. Based on the reviews, many many people like this book, so I guess it is a matter of taste. I would not buy other books in the series.
